LGBTQ pride groups in northwestern Ontario are calling for an urgent meeting with Conservative MP Eric Melillo over what they’re calling transphobic policy resolutions passed by the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC). The organizations, covering Thunder Bay to Kenora, issued a joint statement Tuesday in response to “the rise in transphobic rhetoric coming from certain political movements and the CPC’s response to them.” Caitlin Hartlen, chair of Rainbow Alliance Dryden, said they’re concerned about two key policy resolutions passed during the CPC’s national convention earlier this month: To ban children experiencing gender dysphoria from receiving gender-related “life-altering medicinal or surgical interventions.”
